Greetings Group, We tried a new spot today, the Flabob Airport Cafe in Riverside, and it was great. My dad used to keep a plane at this airport in the 60's. It was nice to see the place again and remember flying with him as a kid. I don't think I appreciated it as much then as now. I found myself remembering Ray Stits, Art Scholl and some of the other famous pilots that flew here.
We had a larger than normal attendance with a total of 12 people and 8 classic cars. The drive was a little farther for some but everyone agreed that we should come back again.
Sandy Davies drove her Phase One BJ8 with the factory hardtop on and I drove the Modified BN2. Jimmy Davis was in his BN2 once more with his friend Jack Hoefferle,who had helped him with an electrical issue with the car. Bill and Diane Wilkman came in their MGA, Brad Benson was in his Volvo P1800ES, Gary Clendenning and Randy Clary each drove their Jensen-Healeys and Allan and Tina Perry were in their BT7. Kirt Languirand joined us for breakfast as well. I didn't see what he drove.
We drew a spectator who was leaving the café, and who it turns out, has a Triumph, Dirk Dorning. We invited him to join us next time. If you missed it this time, we will be going back again for our March breakfast. Join us if you can. It will be the 1st Saturday in March at 8:00AM.
